Starting an Inflatable Party Rental Business: What to Embrace and What to Avoid - Bouncy Rentals LLC

Flexibility and a large, varied target market make starting an inflatables rental business a viable option for many would-be operators.

Rosedale, MD, August 30, 2011 --( Zury Mansur, owner of Bouncy Rentals, LLC, in Baltimore, Md., began with just a small selection of units when he founded his business two years ago. Research, too, was part of his strategy for jumping on the inflatables rental bandwagon.

Mansur first saw inflatables “in action” on a visit to Florida. Intrigued and looking for an income to supplement his regular salary, he returned home to Maryland and took a hard look at his potential market to ensure that competition would not pose too much of a challenge for a fledgling operation.

“I discovered that there wasn’t much competition—and that there wasn’t much capital required to start—so I went ahead. But I wouldn’t let (excitement) prevent me,” from due diligence.

Steady growth, derived from serving a cadre of residential party clients as well as doing a smaller volume of church festival and special event business, has enabled Mansur to resign from his job and focus his energies on Bouncy Rentals LLC. Today, Mansur and his partners continually prime the operation for success by re-investing a substantial portion of profits back into the operation. Such re-investment comes in the form of purchasing new inflatables, advertising in a variety of media and improving the Web site.

“Reinvestment is a must,” Mansur asserted.
